Western Pennsylvania Conservancy
Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, working together to save the places we care about by connecting people to the natural world. Since its inception in 1932, the Conservancy has protected more than 205,000 acres of natural lands in Pennsylvania. We continue to work to secure lands of ecological significance that frequently offer recreational and scenic values. Working in identified protection areas, Western Pennsylvania Conservancy fosters the integration of ecological protection with economic and social needs while building on the core values of the community. Through community conservation efforts, Western Pennsylvania Conservancy works to help make neighborhoods healthier and more attractive through its urban flower and vegetable garden programs and other greening projects. By helping to encourage reinvestment in communities, we can help reduce development pressures on undeveloped countrysides. Western Pennsylvania Conservancy maintains and operates Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterwork, in Mill Run, which was entrusted to the Conservancy in 1963. We are dedicated to preserving Fallingwater as a symbol of living in harmony with nature.
